    The loons are back on the lake!!!

  • Jeff

    Silly Ratturd, not too bright!!

    It’s called a bill (a clear record) that passed in the Senate and stalled in the GOP controlled house.

    Research Review and Realize…Doesn’t take too much brain power…..NOT TOO MUCH……just a little.

    I hear its cold maybe go jump head first in that lake buddy. :lol:

  • Ratboy

    It was Bush’s fault!!

  • Raz

    Hillary testifying today proves that Republicans are pussies!! They duck and hide behind lawyers or demand private testimony

    Gee an it only took a cold, concussion, wine tasting and a blood clot to get her fanny in the chair.
    More then enough time to get with her lawyers to cook up a good story.

    The one thing the right people on this blog have in common: a very LOW level of education. AND they are also very close minded. I would suggest you all enroll in a good university and bring yourselves up to the 21st Century. The spring semester is starting now; you can still get in if you hurry. Fox “News” and its hucksters like Limbaugh, Beck and Hannity laugh at you people silently as they make millions of people like you.

  • Ratboy

    Hillary – “what difference does it make!” This in response to questions as to why the American people were lied to by Susan Rice!


  • usa8888

    The good thing is that the righties are so irritated by LOSING BIG in the election, the Senate and even some seats in the House that they can hardly control their anger. Now, if the the uneducated right wing bags in the House would just STOP OBSTRUCTING, Obama and the moderate GOP and dems can get something done and get the economy humming again.

  • Raz

    I hear its cold maybe go jump head first in that lake buddy

    Dang Jeff, if you don’t wanna make sense and play nice, take your dollys and go home, ya REMF.

  • usa8888

    This just in: Fox “News” is pandering to the gun lobby again by suggesting someone is trying to disarm America. WRONG! They are trying to stop the far right wing managed NRA from abetting in the killing more children and adults! How many of you right wingers use your AR-15’s to hunt deer?? Come back to me….. And how many of you us 100 bullet magazines?

  • Coffee Steve

    Wow! This is the first news I’ve watched since election night, is this a hearing for truth, or the Blame Game gameshow?

    I’m afraid everyone, it’s now 100% at the point where our elected officials feel like they don’t need to answer to us anymore. Your Uncle Sam knows whats best for you, now just shut up, go away and let us do what we want to do. An oath to tell the truth is no more than words now.

    I guess 200 years was a good run though.

  • Coffee Steve

    It’s a very good thing I guess I am not doing the Washington beat anymore, my report tonight would be blistering…

    BBL… School is now back in session

    That’s how they “take responsibility” for the bad things that happen, they know they’re untouchable.

  • Raz

    USA8888, does this mean we should take away hammers, knives and baseball bats and call the National Baseball league the new NRA because they advocate the use of bats? More people dies from those three things then guns. Guns just make better news and an unarmed public is a vunerable public…..comrade.

  • usa8888

    Hey Rat–I understand YOU signed off on Bush’s two wars, drug plan, and tax cuts without requiring any of this to be in the budget—over a trillion dollars dollars–is this true??? And I thought you were against spending??? Come back to us….

  • 1966

  • usa8888

    Raz–NO!! It means we should BAN all assaulty type rifles, large magazines, and tumbling bullets for civilians. There is no need for these, escept for the “pleasure” that some get get shooting them. But there is IMMENSE DANGER from these as lunatics get hold of them and kill innocent children and adults. The money hungry NRA with its far right fringe management doesn’t care about lives lost, they just care about putting a fast buck in the pockets….. PS. as a former baseball player, I have never seen a bat that could be put on semi or auto and kill hundreds of people. Raz–would you like to use bazookas, too?????

  • Ratboy

    Hey Raz, did you hear that loon? :lol:

  • Ratboy

    there it is again!!

  • Ratboy

    There is estimated to be about 40,000 deaths that happen yearly due to car accidents. Some statistics show that every 12 minutes someone has died form a car accident

    The Centers for Disease Control says 11,493 people died from gun homicides

    So what should we get rid of first???

  • usa8888

    Rat–It is because of people like you with your very low level of intelligence that you lost the election big. Keep it up…and we will win by even bigger margins in 2014 and 2016. Thanks very much!!!!
